It doesn’t appear that large-scale development in the West Loop will be slowing down anytime soon, especially as several more major projects get ready to break ground in this rapidly-growing part of the Windy City.
Earlier this spring, developers behind Gr333n, a 19-story office tower at 333 N. Green Street, secured a building permit, and foundation work for the project has already gotten underway. Look for Gr333n to be wrapped up sometime in early 2020, at which point London-based advertising firm WPP will officially open its new Chicago offices.
Union West is also another high-profile project in the works for the West Loop, which will stand 15-stories high and include 358 apartment residences, parking for just 255 vehicles, and 12,000 square feet of retail space.
Switching to the hotel side of things, an extended-stay Hyatt will soon occupy 113 N. May Street in the West Loop and is expected to serve McDonald’s employees and trainees attending Hamburger University.
Finally, another major apartment building dubbed Milieu will also be joining the West Loop landscape soon, which will stand 19-stories high and bring 275 more rentals to the area. Despite its size, developers are still targeting a summer 2019 delivery date.
